Your Name: Origin and Pronunciation?

What's your name's (or online handle's) origin and pronunciation?

 

I'll begin:

My online handle is pronounced [tɕʰʌnɕin] (in IPA). The handle was created back in 2005 ~ 2006 for an online game I played: International GunZ. The game has since died, replaced by its many offspring, but I kept the name and evolved it for my other online handles.

  1. 天神 (never used)
  2. 천신 (never used)
  3. Cheon_Shin (naïve romanization of the above)
  4. CenSin (based on the Yale romanization system)

 

 

Now everyone else can share theirs! :(

My handle name is FamousNYLover. It prounced as it spell.

I combine three words.

Famous, New York, Lover.

Just as my 2005 X-Mas New York Times Article titled "He Loves New York, and It Loves Him Right Back", and March 2007 issue of Japanese Volunteer Magazine SOTOKOTO (ソトコト) under article "Volunteer at MET", I love New York and I became famous with that.

My real name is Yuki (yûki/勇貴) Endo (endoû/遠藤). In Japanese, last name comes first for Japanese and first name comes last.

”yû(勇)” means "brave; courageous; valiant; valorous; manly; courage; bravely; valor: guts."

"ki(貴)" means "noble; exalted:high; precious; valuable; value; prize: esteem: you."

"en(遠)" means "far; afar; faraway; far-off; remote"."

"doû(藤)" means "a wisteria."

"Roku" means 6 in Japanese... the "Six" part was just added. I live along the Pelham Line.

 

I draw human versions of the subway lines for my musical in anime-style, so I thought it would be interesting to look up the numbers in Japanese. This was back in 2007...

 

It's pronounced "Row-koo". If you can't pronounce "Six", then you should probably get Hooked on Phonics, if I may say so.

hey, wait a minute....

 

That's right. She's due in five days.

Interestingly enough, 'sechs' is six in German; though pronounced more like "zecks".

 

It's pronounced "Row-koo".

 

I thought 'ro' carried a distinct "L" sound?
